Research Article

Research or scientific articles are submitted directly from authors. There are no restrictions on topics that are considered for publication, as long as the subject matter is original and relates experimentally or theoretically to the field of Medical /Health Sciences. The information must be sufficiently detailed not only to enable readers to understand and appreciate the material presented, but also to permit replication of the work by other scientists in the field.

Articles should contain a structured abstract limited to 250 words and formatted to include separate headings of: Background, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. The main text should not exceed 3,500 words. The manuscript should have no more than 40 references and a total of 6 tables and/or figures. Supplemental data are permitted for Articles.

Articles should list no more than 20 authors, with any additional contributors listed in the Acknowledgments.

Case reports

Case reports are submitted directly from authors. These articles are intended to be educational, with the goal of helping to develop or improve problem-solving skills. Clinical Case Studies may report unusual (although not necessarily rare) atypical presentation of disease, situations where the laboratory helped in making or clarifying a diagnosis, or information that would be helpful in understanding the pathophysiology of a disease.

A case report should not include an abstract. It should, however, include a case description followed by the case discussion, limited to 1,500 words total. References are limited to 10, and the tables and figures are limited to 2 in total. The author should also list up to 5 points to remember at the end of the manuscript. The case should read as a bit of a mystery or diagnostic dilemma. The case title, case description, and questions should not disclose the diagnosis. Supplemental data are not permitted for Clinical Case Studies. No more than 5 authors should be listed.

Correction

Corrections are unique and will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Authors are encouraged to contact the Editorial Office (HJHS@uoh.edu.sa) should they wish to submit a Correction, or should they find a printer error that needs correcting.

Editorial

These are typically invited submissions. Editorials provide opinions and observations by an expert in the field about the subject matter or content of a scientific paper published in HJHS. In addition to further educating readers on a selected topic, Editorials are designed to stimulate readers to formulate their own opinions about a paper and its value to the field. In some cases, Editorials may also be independent opinions and observations about a controversial topic or changes taking place in the field.

Editorials are limited to 1,500 words. They should not include an abstract. References are limited to 15, and tables and figures are not permitted. No more than 5 authors should be listed. Supplemental data are not permitted for Editorials.

Review

Review articles are either submitted directly from authors or invited submissions. Reviews are intended to provide comprehensive coverage of a topic, including background clinical or analytical information, the relevance and importance of the subject matter, and potential future directions. The use of illustrative figures or tables is encouraged.

A Review article should consist of a structured abstract with headings of Background, Content, and Summary limited to 250 words. The text should not exceed 5,000 words. The manuscript should have no more than 75 references and a total of 6 tables and/or figures. Supplemental data are permitted for Review articles.

Reviews should list no more than 15 authors, with any additional contributors listed in the Acknowledgments.
